Update: VICTORY in Pacific City

The decision is in on the Pacific City “Navigational Safety Zone”

We are STOKED to announce that today (June 24th, 2015)  the Oregon State Marine Board (OSMB) voted unanimously to deny the petition to create a “navigational safety zone” and exclude surfers from some of the best waves on the North Coast! This is a major victory for recreational access at Cape Kiwanda!

A major factor in turning this decision in our favor was the massive groundswell of support that everyone provided through your petition signatures and hand-written letters. Surfrider’s ability to influence decisions like this is only as strong as your support, we couldn’t have done this without YOU!

Official release from Oregon State Marine Board:

The bill passed committee today and is on it’s way to floor for final reads.

Rise Above Plastics Bills – Headed to Senate

Two pieces of legislation have caught the eye and advocacy of our Surfrider Chapters in Oregon this session, both offering opportunities to make some decent progress for our ongoing Rise Above Plastics initiative. First up is HB 3478, currently on the house floor for it’s third reading aims to phase out the use of plastic microbeads, which are becoming ubiquitous in many personal care products like toothpastes, cosmetics and facial scrubs. Designed to be washed down the drain, these plastic particles are not removed from most wastewater treatment plants and ultimately end up polluting our waterways and oceans. Next up is HB 2762, which requires school districts to eliminate use of polystyrene foam plates, trays and other food containers in school meal service. Initiated by students, this is an awesome aim to remove some of the worst and least recyclable trash from our waste stream  and has some of our youth clubs fired up to visit Salem!
